Default Howdo I set a default footer in Excel Book1 on opening

I want to have a footer in every new workbook that opens. I like to show the
path and file name and don't like to have to set it in each new workbook i
open
Using Excel 2003

Default Howdo I set a default footer in Excel Book1 on opening

Open a new workbook. Customize as you wish including your print
settings.........group the sheets before setup so's all sheets get same
Footer setup...............those items you want are available through the
Icons on Custom Footer.

FileSave As Type: scroll down to Excel Template(*.XLT) and select. Name
your workbook "BOOK"(no quotes). Excel will add the .XLT to save as
BOOK.XLT.

Store this workbook in the XLSTART folder usually located at........

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Microsoft\Excel\XLSTART

This will be the default workbook for FileNew or the Toolbar button
FileNew or CTRL + n

WARNING for Excel 2003................Do not use FileNew...Blank Workbook
or you will get the Excel default workbook.

NOTE: Existing workbooks are not affected by these settings.

You can also open a new workbook and delete all but one sheet. Customize as
you wish then save this as SHEET.XLT in XLSTART folder also. It now becomes
the default InsertSheet.

More can be found on this in Help under "templates"(no quotes).

Instructions are for Excel 2003 and earlier.

2007 is similar except you would save as BOOK.xltx
